HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
Solid - Claude - Musique Large

Fulgeance is one funky French guy; I watched him totally slaughter a crowd with a dual MPC set-up at Thugs & Hugs once. His latest endeavour with Darius Broobecker as Claude drops the hip-hop and dials up the dancefloor proper though, toting certain tracks that channel Dorian Concept’s early thickened synth work and others that would sound like they were toeing the five-panel techno line if it weren't for the genuinely enjoyable conga and organ flourishes.

The Discovery - Somna - GO On Air Recordings

Somna’s GO On Air debut is as good an example as any of the label’s excellent first innings stretch. Thunderously produced and cool without being laidback, it’s stacked with un-rote sounds. Add to that riffs that deliver their thrill without strolling too high up the keyboard, and FX that’ll tickle a neuron from a thousand yards out, well bottom line, ‘The Discovery’ just works.       

The Dark - Boom Jinx feat Meredith Call - Anjunabeats

A superior example of vocal trance reworking itself into an electro-fied refresh that’s festival ready, ‘The Dark’ is also great singer/songwriting; rare as diamonds in this space. If the challenge is to balance trance emotion with EDM appeal, Boom Jinx nails it here.  

Just Begun - Buckshot & P-Money feat Raz Fresco - Dawn Raid/Dirty Records/Duck Down Records

From the just-dropped 'BackPack Travels' LP — great to hear Buckshot on the mic again, who seems to actually have got angrier and sharper since the Black Moon days, and ace production from P-Money too. Tight and triffic.
